This KCRCC Isn’t That KCRCC

A post card prepared by Kootenai County Republican Concerned Citizens (KCRCC) political action committee.

There's a lot of buzz this morning about a new political action committee that's tied to the Rally Right wing of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee (KCRCC). The new PAC? Kootenai County Republican Concerned Citizens. Or KCRCC. See the trick here? An unsuspecting Republican who might get a postcard from this group — and one has been prepared — might think the local Republican Central Committee has endorsed the Concerned Citizens candidates. All the endorsements are for Rally Right/United Conservatives of North Idaho-type hardline candidates — Vick, Barbieri & Eric Redman in Legislative District 2. Fulcher (gov), Chmelik (lt. gov.), Denney (secretary of state), Troupis (AG), Hatfield (controller), and Eynon (Superintendent of Schools). You can read all about the tricky new PAC on its Web site here. The only identifiable individual attached to the organization is its treasurer, John H. Thyssen III of Post Falls.
